Beautiful boutique hotel with great, unique decor. The high ceilings let a lot of light in and create great spacious atmosphere. The common areas are lovely, there is coffee, water, and tea in the lobby. The rooms are not very large but well decorated and very comfortable with a spacious bathroom. Would stay again in a heartbeat! The only downside is the pool which is shared with a neighbouring hotel and doesn't quite match the Metcalfe.

the staff at the Metcalfe were AMAZING particularly Sherlee and Rayelle. They were very courteous and were very engaging every time we would come down to front desk. The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious! The hot tub was probably my favourite :) I would definitely recommend the hotel and would come back for multiple stays!

A friendly, cozy, downtown boutique hotel with a very attractive decor. Great front desk staff (Noella, Shirley and Rahel) who made checking in and out an experience instead of a task. Room was very comfortable with lots of space, appeared to be newly renovated. Overall the interior was extremely clean and tidy. I definitely recommend this hotel if you want proximity to everything in the downtown area. One suggestion, book directly with the hotel, they are very accommodating and flexible when it comes to price and room upgrades. Definitely my go to Ottawa hotel.

I have stayed at the Metcalfe, sent clients there and even applied for a job there. Why? Because it is brilliantly located, the epitome of a boutique hotel. The anti big no character hotel. People are there for you. Food is good. Very few flaws. Parking isn’t easy access and pool needs help. Otherwise a great experience.

This turned out to be a pleasant surprise from a non large chain hotel. People were pleasant and helpful. Facilities were well maintained and updated. Rooms were decent size and beds comfortable. Restaurant variety was adequate and meals were consistently well prepared. Convenient access to a small gym area and hot tub, pool were well used by children.
